for a 7 day trip is it 7 nights come home on the 8th day or 6 nights come home on the 7th day?
If you leave your home airport and arrive on the same day that is considered your first night. So, let's make it a Saturday. That would be the first night at a hotel. Sunday would be 2, M=3, Tues=4, W=5, Thur=6 and Fri night would be your 7th night meaning that if you left on the next day, Saturday, it would be your 8th day. It you can only stay a total of 7 days Saturday arrival and the next Friday departure would be 7 days. Most hotels would talk in nights stayed, so it is up to you to decide how many nights you have or want to stay.
Seven days ussually means seven nights at a hotel
